    Excerpt from Audubon's Birds and Quadrupeds of America: List of Plates Now Offered for Sale SeparatelyIt is perhaps needless for us to say much here in praise of these plates or in explanation of their history. Their production was the grand result of the labor of a lifetime spent, as it was, in the constant pursuit of this one great object, in which he was sustained by a lofty enthusiasm which no difficulties nor no amount of danger could overcome. In every plate it is Nature herself that is copied. They are full of vivacity, the birds being represented in action amid the scenes, or on the plants and trees most common to their habits, all carefully drawn and colored according to nature. He has not contented himself, as others have done, with single profile views, but in very many instances has grouped his figures so as to represent the originals at their natural avocations; and has placed them on branches of trees decorated with foliage, blossoms and fruits, or amidst plants of numerous species. Some are seen pursuing their prey through the air, searching for food amongst the leaves and herbage, sitting in their nests, or feeding their young; whilst others of a different nature swim, wade or glide in or over their allotted element. In this consists the superiority of Audubon's delineations over those of other naturalists, wherein the birds are represented in as stiff a posture as if they were sitting for their portraits.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

    John James Audubon's sumptuous four-volume edition of "Birds of America", published between 1827 and 1838, contains 435 hand-colored life-size prints of 1,065 individual American birds. A glorious union of science and art, it remains an unequaled achievement in ornithology illustration. In tracing Audubon's quest to produce this groundbreaking work, Vedder draws on the artist and naturalist's own writings and the latest scholarship on his life and on "Birds of America". Plates from the Huntington Library's double-elephant folio are reproduced in color, including the wild turkey, Baltimore oriole, bald eagle, and (once presumed extinct) ivory-billed woodpecker. Vedder provides with each plate a commentary on the unique characteristics of the species depicted, based on Audubon's own observations in the field.

This printing also features an attractive new binding cloth, in a sumptuous teal color. The Baby Elephant Folio presents all 435 of Audubon's brilliant hand-colored engravings in exquisite reproductions derived from the original plates of the National Audubon Society's archival copy of the rare Double Elephant Folio. Although many attempts have been made to re-create the splendid illustrations in Audubon's masterpiece, nothing has ever equaled the level of fidelity achieved in this luxurious edition. Organized and annotated by Roger Tory Peterson and Virginia Marie Peterson, and issued with the full endorsement and cooperation of the Audubon Society, this volume is as informative as it is beautiful.Its fascinating introduction places Audubon in the context of the history of American ornithological art and also reproduces a wide sampling of the work of his notable predecessors and disciples, including Roger Tory Peterson's own rightfully famous paintings. A new systematic arrangement of the prints, following the modern classification of species, and descriptive captions about each bird allow us to appreciate Audubon's achievement in the light of modern ornithology.

    As the summer of 1821 began, John James Audubon's ambition to create a comprehensive pictorial record of American birds was still largely a dream when, out of economic necessity, he came to Oakley Plantation, a sprawling estate in Louisiana's West Feliciana Parish. Teeming with what Audubon described as an "almost supernatural" abundance of birds, the woods of Oakley galvanized his sense of possibility for one of the most audacious undertakings in the annals of art. In A SUMMER OF BIRDS, journalist and essayist Danny Heitman sorts through the facts and romance of Audubon's summer at Oakley, drawing upon a rich variety of Audubon's extensive journals, recent Audubon scholarship, and Robert Penn Warren's poetry to create a stimulating excursion across time, linking the historical Audubon to the present-day civic and cultural icon. Includes 46 color illustrations plus 18 halftones and 1 map.
